Beyond Stitch Diagrams

Debbie Rowley of DebBee Designs has started a series aimed at helping stitchers figure out how to work a stitch.   Have you ever looked at a stitch diagram that wasn't numbered and wonder how on earth the stitch should be made?  What order do you work the stitches that make up a stitch unit?  How do you move to the next unit?  Is this stitch worked left to right, top to bottom, on the diagonal? Debbie will try to take the mystery out of stitches so that you can work them with more confidence the next time you have a stitch diagram in front of you.

Debbie also talks about how to do cross stitches "over two" which is particularly pertinent to those who do traditional cross stitch.
